Storyline

When a gang attacks his ranch and kills one of his ranch hands, Jim Roberts gets together with his neighbors to fight the Bennett Cattle Co., whom they are sure is behind the attacks in a scheme to drive them off their land so they can get it for themselves, then build packing plants so they don't have to spend the money to ship cattle back east. When they hear about the neighbors' plans to resist, the company hires professional killer Butch Crane to stop them. Government agent Rocky Cameron and his partner Fuzzy are dispatched to gather evidence against the company, but Fuzzy is soon mistaken for Crane. Complications ensue. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Excellent cast not used well in mediocre plot that is still mostly fun
19 February 2017 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

Bob Livingston was a very good actor but in this entry in the "Lone Rider" series, he rather walked through it.

Al St. John, on the other hand, always gave his all, and generally came across that way in "Raiders of Red Gap."

Yes, there were moments he somewhat overdid, but he had one of his best roles in this series.

The leading lady, Myrna Dell, also had a good role. She got to be more than a pretty face, and in her last scene she showed she should have had many more and bigger roles.

Charles King is my favorite villain, and for a change, he is the brains heavy, not just the brawn.

As sheriff, George Cheesebro got to play an unusual role, a good guy, and what an actor! He was incredibly likable here, too.

It's a pretty light-weight B Western, but I like it and hope you will too. And you can catch it as I did, at YouTube.
